A Brush with Kindness in Duluth

Religious Groups Team up to Help Habitat for Humanity

The Loaves and Fishes Catholic Worker Community received “A Brush with Kindness” Tuesday through an annual interfaith build.

It’s the second time the Temple Israel congregation and Glen Avon Presbyterian church have teamed up to work together for the event with Habitat for Humanity at the Dorothy Day House in Duluth.

The “Brush with Kindness” event is timed to coincide with the Jewish fall harvest festival which is happening right now.

It’s something participants say is timely and important to do.

“One of the main themes of Sukkot is the fragility of shelter and so that’s a very good time to join together and help out Habitat for Humanity,” said Rabbi David Steinberg.

Pastor Robyn Weaver added, “To be able to bring a number of people together to do quick shots of important work to do it together, to share a meal together is very special.”

Volunteers moved sheds, picked vegetables from a garden to provide food for others and worked on other projects.

Families interested in partnering with Habitat or groups interested in volunteering and providing support, should call 218–722–3875.
